  1. If she painted the pattern, you have to clean it frequently or it will collect paint on the back of the paper and distribute it where you lay it next. I made several paper patterns and used them alternatively, then blotted the back after each use with a paper towel. on mine after I was done I took some black paint that was the same sheen as my material and touch up areas that smeared a little. The pictures you posted look like it smeared a lot, but I guess they can try to cover up the places it’s not supposed to be painted
  2. I’ve been called leia multiple times in my visas. I guess cause they are both female?
  3. Pam’s guide was a big help to me http://chucrew.com/Visas/visas.html

  5. Both have been approved! I took a few wip pics over the last few months, I'll add some details for what I did to make this soon
  6. I had to shorten the veil by an inch or so, but otherwise it is good to go
  7. I have been working on this on and off for a while and I've finally got it to a point where it's about ready to submit. I did both versions of the underdress and veil
  8. I took a look at the fabric at Walmart and found a few options. They are cotton so not as soft as I wanted but still might work. The one on the right is what I'm leaning towards Here are a few more, the one on the right is the same one from above
  9. Would the middle darker fabric color work? I didn't like the fabric texture, but if the color is right I will use that as a reference for other textures
  10. I wondered that, here is some material I had at home. It looks totally different in natural light versus inside light. The lighter red fabric is some I have that I thought about using for the belt. The black fabric was pleather type fabric
  11. I am starting my visas build of the unseen unheard version, would one of these colors work for the inner dress/headpiece, and the outer dress? In the light In the shadow Another option Here's a jersey knit, ok color but not sure on the fabric
  12. My son likes this costume, so I made it for him to troop in with me. He is not eligible for 501st yet, but I wanted to post it for feedback. I've got some other tweaks I want to make to it but it's a good start. He loved getting this picture some source references: 1. At Mara's Funeral, from Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force 2. Portrait from The Essential Atlas 3. A Star Wars Galaxy 6 sketch card by Steven Miller 4. A Star Wars Galaxy 7 sketch card by Scott Zambelli 5, Star Wars Minatures Costume pieces: •Tunic W/mandarin collar – black shirt bought, add collar •Black Jedi tabard, knee length – created and sewn to the shirt so they wouldn't move around •Black pants - bought, no decorative items or visible pockets •Jackboots – use already have •Chest Armor – used EVA foam cut, shaped, painted and attached to black shirt •Vader style surcoat •Vader style cloak - attached to shoulders of surcoat •Belt & buckle – black belt, created buckle from foam and add embellishment, plan to redo with tandy buckle •Vader style Gloves – bought and sewed seams as seen in the pics •Lightsaber, Vader style
